But size isn’t everything, you know. Honestly. In a pre-show tease, R-Comp‘s Andrew Rawnsley has posted to the RISC OS Open Forum to say the company will have something new at this weekend’s show – in a thread entitled “Good things come in small packages.” He goes on to explain that you shouldn’t be deceived [...]
And you thought I was slow putting my videos online! Ruth Gunstone is one of the duo that handles the theatre at the annual Wakefield Show, along with Peter Richmond, and she has also made video recordings of the talks for the last couple of years. Her recordings from last year’s show are now online [...]
Communication sometimes leaves links incomplete – but this new version should help! This year’s Wakefield Show, which takes place on Saturday, 21st April – a couple of days time – will see the release of a brand new version of Messenger Pro, which now gains a big, shiny ‘8’ on the end of its name [...]
Well, newish – the first time at this particular show. Having missed the recent Southwest Show, CJE Micro’s and 4D will be at the Wakefield Show this Saturday, and will be bringing along two products for their first ever trip to the show, having been released since the last one. Those two products are the [...]
It’s simple maths, innit? In the wake of the recent Recursion and Southwest shows, and the launch of the CE range, Ident Computer‘s Tom Williamson and RISCOSbits‘ Andy Marks have recognised a degree of overlap in some of their product range and, rather than compete, have put their heads – and their overlapping products – [...]

Or whisper. It’s your choice, and under your control! Jon Abbott, taking a break from making old games work via ADFFS as part of the Archimedes Software Preservation Project, has released a new version of pi-topUtils. The software provides things like a battery level indicator, screen dimming (which helps preserve battery life), automatic shutdown, and [...] […]
Also: No touching – ew! RISC OS Open Ltd will be bringing RISC OS 5.24 to Wakefield. This will be the first public outing of the new stable release of the operating system, which will cover all platforms except iMX6 and OMAP5 – and for Pi users, this will be the first chance for people [...]
Gavin Wraith has released a new tool for generating websites and updating individual web pages. Called Qoppa, the application is – unsurprisingly – built on RiscLua, and it will parse the directory in which it is placed, generating web pages from those files. The files can contain HTML or some limited ‘markdown’, get a default [...]
A new version of the Doom Trilogy is available from R-Comp through !Store – priced at £14.99, or available in ‘My Software’ as a free update if you have already purchased. If you have an aversion to purchasing through !Store, ‘over the counter’ at Wakefield is also an option. There have been some small improvements [...]
RISC OS Open look forward to seeing you at the Wakefield RISC OS show, this Saturday 21th April 2018. We’re on stand 15 all day, or come to hear what we’ve doing and how to get involved in the midday theatre slot. New releases It’ll be a chance to get hands on with RISC OS 5.24 – the new stable release – making its first public outing, packed with over 650 c […]
We’re excited to be able to reveal two important steps in the overhaul of RISC OS’ creaking network stack today. It’s a lock-in on step 1 After a number of briefcases containing keys were exchanged, and several complex meetings concluded in a three way handshake the bounty, which opened in February 2017, has now begun at a top secret location. This particula […]
A few things I can think of: Do you have anything that uses A% to Z%? For some silly reason BASIC doesn’t zero-initialise them on startup, so if you’ve got a code path which is reading from one of them before it’s been initialised then you could be getting some undefined behaviour from that (although it does seem a bit odd that it’s always the same place whe […]
Thread’s drifted a bit, annit? :-) Anyway: 7059 STOP has produced “Stopped” on a couple of occasions. So we’re further on and we’re no further on. There are no GOTOs in the code. You can see the previous lines in the code (and the last non-blank line before that is ENDPROC). So how can line 7059 be executed?
What other 5.xx have been released? 5.25 and 5.23? LazyWeb: Whence these? For the past few years the convention has been that even-numbered OS versions are stable builds, and so have a modicum of post-release support (e.g. updates & patches), while odd-numbered OS versions are development builds (no patching, just upgrade to a newer dev/stable build whic […]
such a bad fracture that he needed two 4" titanium rods screwed into his bones. Oh, that sounds horrendous. Was it on ice? At least you were moving at the time. There seems to be an accumulation of gravel at the end of the driveway. I am guessing I slipped in that (and judging by my other hand, landed in it). The thing is, I applied the brakes and then […]
